Over A Century of Experience
So how is it 35 years after connecting my first systems we have
created "The Bridge"? I am convinced it all started as a boy,
when asked "What do you want to be when you grow up?" the
answer was 'Bridge Builder'. Be careful what you ask for in
this life, it's most likely to come true. I graduated from
College and went to work, for ten years, at T. J. Watson
Research Labs, Famous for 'Deep Blue' Chess Machine and
'Watson' the computer Jeopardy Champion, where I filed 22
patents, here is one: Polystyrene-tetrathiafulvalene
polymers as deep-ultraviolet mask material US 4543319 A. It
was in this role as Research Assistant, 1978, I connected my
first two systems, a Lab Instrument to the MVS Mainframe
Computer using an IBM Research 'Data Coupler'. For the
following five years I worked in a Blue Suit as a Marketing
Representative for IBM, attaining 'Rookie of the Year' and
'Hundred Percent Club' the next three years. The next 20 years
(see we are at 35 years now) I was full time creating fully
integrated systems for corporations. Many of these systems were
'Connected' to other systems though EDI, Web Services or File
Upload. That leads us to today where we can connect mobile
devices to business systems for competitive advantage, 35 years
after connecting that first Lab system.
Oh, and I do have some stories to tell you about the Fortran Programs I wrote and the AS/400's I connected using some of the earliest APIs, however those are stories for another day!
